Ethiopia 2011 Day 12

Today we spent the day in the car. We had to drive about 250 kilometers to get to the Mekele so we could visit our new school project tomorrow. The drive from Axum to Mekele was through a very remote part of the country but we were surprised to see that a new road connecting the two towns was about 50% done. Along the way we saw several large caravans of camels which the locals use to transport goods to markets in the area. The drive took us through some of the highest mountains in Ethiopia which provided us with some of the most amazing views. We arrived in Mekele several hours after dark so we had a late dinner and climbed in to bed. As I fell asleep my mind drifted off with anticipation of seeing the new school project and meeting new students.
